The majority of cellular responses to external stimuli are mediated by receptors such as Gprotein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and systems including endoplasmic reticulum stress (ER stress).Since GPCR signalling is pivotal in numerous malignancies, they are widely targeted by a number ofclinical drugs. Cancer cells often negatively modulate GPCRs in order to survive, proliferate and todisseminate. Similarly, numerous branches of the unfolded protein response (UPR) act as pro-survivalmediators and are involved in promoting cancer progression via mechanisms such as epithelial tomesenchymal transition (EMT). However, there are a few proteins among these groups which impededeleterious effects by orchestrating the pro-apoptotic phenomenon and paving a therapeutic pathway.The present review exposes and discusses such critical mechanisms and some of the key processesinvolved in carcinogenesis.
